Family Time


Don’t you treasure your family time?
It sort of puts your heart to rest
Devoted, loved and respected
A close family is always the best

Children are taught to respect
The elderly folks related to them
They hear stories, look at pictures of
Family from which their lives stem

And of course, we all have relatives
That we never got to know
But we listen so intently to those
Who enjoyed that person so

Mom and dad with our babies
Pictures that are truly treasures
To put into a book or on a CD
Each memory is always a pleasure

So gather up all of your memories
For future generations to find
Opening up windows to the past
They can add their own family time!

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
